Over two years of training sessions, when I arrived late or irritable, at times I’ve responded to some of his observations, but these are incidents that start and end there, they don’t get dragged on.“Obviously, that’s not all that happens, as I can joke around with the Coach too. Since he’s been at the club, he has never forced me to take on a role I didn’t want.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

New Delhi: Insurance regulator IRDAI Monday said it has sought proposal from Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) for paring its shareholding in the recently acquired controlling stake in IDBI Bank. Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI) stipulates that insurers are allowed to hold only up to 15 per cent stake in any listed entity. But LIC, with a special dispensation from IRDAI, holds more than the limit in some state-run banks.

We are not leaving it to them. I have asked them (LIC) to give a proposal and after that we will take a decision,” IRDAI Chairman Subhash Chandra Khuntia said on the sidelines of an event organised by Ficci here. Last June, IRDAI permitted LIC to acquire up to 51 per cent stake in debt-ridden IDBI Bank. On December 28, LIC pumped Rs 14,500 crore into the bank as part of its takeover, following which it injected another Rs 5,030 crore on January 21.

For the third quarter ended December 2018, IDBI Bank reported widening of loss by nearly threefold to Rs 4,185.48 crore. The bank had reported a loss of Rs 1,524.31 crore in the year-ago period. Total income fell to Rs 6,190.94 crore for the quarter, compared with Rs 7,125.20 crore in the corresponding period a year ago. With regard to exposure of the insurance firm to debt- ridden IL&FS group companies, Khuntia said, the regulator will ensure that policyholders do not lose money. “Either they get it back fully or they will have to provide for it. Some of the IL&FS companies may be better off. We will find some ways so that policyholders are protected,” he said. Speaking at the event, Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY) and National Health Authority CEO Indu Bhushan said Ayushman Bharat (AB) has benefited 15 lakh people since its launch in September. In 170 days, about Rs 2,000 crore has been spent on providing free health treatment to beneficiaries, he said.
New Delhi: Video OTT market in India – which primarily comprises content streaming services – is likely to be ranked among the top 10 markets globally with a market size of $823 million (about Rs 5,363 crore) by 2022, a ASSOCHAM-PwC joint study said Thursday. “The Indian video OTT market is at a fairly nascent stage, the video OTT market globally has entered into the growth phase of the market life cycle. With a CAGR of 22.6 per cent during the period of 2017 2022, the Indian video OTT market is poised to outperform the global video OTT market, which is pegged to have a CAGR of 10.1 per cent during the same period,” it said. Also Read – Commercial vehicle sales to remain subdued in current fiscal: IcraThe study titled ‘Video on Demand: Entertainment reimagined’ further noted that by 2022, the Indian video OTT market will be amongst the top 10 markets globally with a market size of $823 million (Rs 5,363 crore). Video OTT (over the top) services in India include the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube etc. “The five fundamental drivers of this convergent business model are uninterrupted connectivity, mobile devices becoming the primary source of content consumption, the need to move away from traditional revenue streams, value shifting from content creators to platforms, and ability to provide a personalised offering to the consumer,” the report said.

With lower-than-ever data tariffs and increasing smartphone penetration in the country, it is safe to assume that the video on demand (VoD) market will be a significant beneficiary of these developments, the study said. “Internet consumption is clearly on the rise in India. The important factor for the VoD industry is the availability of devices that are compatible with online video viewing. A large volume of consumption occurs on smartphones,” it added. Apart from smartphones, tablets are another promising device for the VoD industry. “However, India has just about 5.3 per cent penetration as of 2017, and this is expected to go up to just about 10 per cent in 2022. The low penetration is definitely a missed opportunity for players as tablets offer fairly larger screens which are better for consuming HD content as compared to smartphones,” the study said. The study further pointed out that television is the largest sub-segment within the entertainment and media industry, and will continue to remain so in the near future.
Casablanca – Everyone remembers the unprecedented outrage that the anti-Islamic documentary “Innocence of Islam” had caused among Muslims across the world. On Wednesday, a U.S. appeals court ordered Google Inc to remove the documentary from YouTube.According to Haaretz, the Court turned down Google’s assertion that removing “Innocence of Islam” from YouTube would be unconstitutional. Cindy Lee Garcia, the plaintiff and one of the actors in the documentary, had objected to the film after she discovered that a clip she had shot for a different film was included in the anti-Islamic documentary. In the clip, Garcia appears asking, “Is your Mohammed a child molester?”However, Google did not accept the Court’s decision and stated that “we strongly disagree with this ruling and will fight it.”“Ordering YouTube and Google to take down the film was the right thing to do,” Garcia’s lawyer, Cris Armenta, stated after hearing the Court’s verdict.Google claimed that while Garcia could have legal claims against the film director, she should not have won a copyright case against Google. The giant company also claimed that the video should not be removed because it had become part of public debate.Before resorting to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Garcia’s claim for copyright was addressed in a lower court, where her request to have the documentary removed from YouTube was rejected.The documentary depicted the Prophet Mohmmaed as a fool and a sexually neurotic individual.© Morocco World News.

There is more to it than that.”“It doesn’t matter who scores for Juve. I think Paulo Dybala can adapt and play like Isco to help feed Cristiano Ronaldo,” he added.“Gonzalo Higuain has gone to Milan and he is completely different to Karim Benzema. He prefers a central role, whereas Benzema likes to roam all along the front line.”“It’s too early to say if Inter will be the main challengers to Juve.
